Bauman Finalist For Washington Job

Originally posted at 8:05 p.m. Thursday

Coeur d'Alene Superintendent of Schools Hazel Bauman sent out a mass email to her staff at 6:36 this evening, saying she was a finalist for a job as superintendent of the Central Kitsap (Wash.) School District. Here's that email:

Good Evening Fellow Staff,

With a great deal of mixed emotions I am sending this message to you in regards to my candidacy for a position as Superintendent in the Central Kitsap  school district in western Washington.

I learned last night that I am a finalist and will be interviewed this weekend.

Because the interview and application process is public I wanted to let you know about this tonight. I respect and admire the work  you do everyday for children and hold you in the deepest of regards.

To say I will miss you and the community of Coeur d'Alene is an understatement of biblical proportions , however I am excited for a new opportunity to be closer to family and to  use my skills in a different way.

Hazel

Question: Do you think the turmoil surrounding the Coeur d'Alene School District prompted Superintendent Bauman to look for work elsewhere?
